Lambeau Field Pilgrimage

A CRISP WIND rolled across Lambeau Field on a sunny, December day. My pilgrimage to Green Bay to see the Packers host the Oakland Raiders was my second — the first happened many years ago when I was just a child.

Lambeau is a beautiful stadium, updated in such a tasteful way that tradition is maintained while wrapped in a well-designed, modern structure.

The Packer Hall of Fame was a treat, featuring all sorts of items and artifacts from previous teams, players and championships. I can't wait to make a return trip, to spend a full day exploring the Hall in detail.

The game experience was wonderful. Our seats were ideal, with a great view of the field and access to Lambeau's club level. Cheering fans and a 46-16 win over the Raiders completed my "Frozen Tundra" experience.

Here are a few images from my Lambeau Field set on Flickr:

NO SKETCHNOTES!!!!! Come on Mike, how could you do that to me...
OK :-[, I guess every now and then you gotta put the pencil down and just enjoy the experience....

Funny you mention that! I had my sketchbook along but decided to hold off so I could fully experience the game. I'm still thinking about wrapping my thoughts and photos into a sketchnote though - at this point finding time is the issue. :-)
